  • "Armas Ferries"

    We were very pleased with the service on our trip from Los Cristianos to El Hierro though the crossing going over was a bit choppy. Boarding and disembarking were trouble free and the staff on board were very pleasant. We used Armas on a trip to La Palma last year and were able to sit at tables outside on the deck which was very pleasant and we would have preferred to do this on the trip to El Hierro but this particular ferry did not have that option. However, I would have no hesitation in using Armas Ferries on future occasions.

  • "Efficient service"

    This is a modern, clean and efficient service. The only draw back is the small amount of deck space, if you want to be outside. The ferry takes up to 800 passengers. There were only 60 on board when we travelled, so ours would not be a typical experience.
